    135th APA National Convention - if you can go , you will see the most unbelievable birds. They say exhibitors from 2 states
    and 2 from Canada have already registered.
    Ventura Ca. October 25th-26th.


    This is the show of the year , someone might sticky this, IMHO

    I'm going! My husband, my 2-year-old and I will be driving all the way down from Northern WA. Not sure if I'll have any birds to bring -- depends on if there's a minimum age set for this show. Has anyone received their premium books yet? They're supposed to be coming out "mid-september."

    Who else is coming? I'd love to meet some other BYC'ers!

    (A suggestion to the OP -- you might want to add "Ventura CA" to the title of the post)

    If I could afford it, I'd go. I'll have to settle for maybe going to the one in Ohio.

    Perhaps she's talking about the Ohio National ?

    Just an update -- I got an email from Dave Anderson this afternoon, he says the premium lists will be mailed out by the end of the week! So for those of you who want to go, make sure to email him with your mailing address!

    I'm totally excited too, I've never been to a "real" show before (just the local fair), much less a National!

    Gosh, I'll probably have to bathe my birds and everything! If he doesn't already, my husband will think I'm nuts!

    I think I'll make plans to attend the one in California for next year. If it was just a few hours away it wouldn't be a big deal, but I'm over in Oklahoma and California is quite the drive!
